if it is tied to berchl marks on border security and enforcement? >> i do like the things that marco rubio has been laying out and i did talk to one of the members on my side of the aisle working with dick durbin and he was optimistic last night at adrenia tended. the details -- at a dinner i attended. the details matter. it is at the talking points stage and this needs to be reduced to legislation. the last time this blew up is when it was reduced to legislation. it is my hope we will come up with a bipartisan solution. i think that enforcement has to be a big part of it. but again, i like many of the principles that marco rubio has been laying out. i think he is a member of the group and i look forward to seeing what they produce. >> chris: finally, you are both members of the senate foreign relations committee which heard from secretary of state clinton this week about the benghazi terror attack. here is the moment that got the most attention. >> we have four dead americans. because of a protest or guys out a walk one night that decided they would kill some americans. what difference does i
in a brilliant manner. marco rubio who is part of this gang of six in the senate. they've been working on this from day one after the election. i think they're ready to come out with something. i think you're going to see that marco rubio has laid a lot of the groundwork by selling these principles. he's gotten great enzorsment and support from one of the most right wing pun makers. now it's time to act upon it and grow it from there. it is basically the only thing happening in congress today, where there is a bipartisan movement on both chambers and both sides of the aisle. >> the election is a long time ago, i've been hearing this a long time ago. why wait? why haven't we heard anything from them? why are they waiting on a president? >> because timing is everything. you know what, if i were you, i wouldn't put money on them waiting on the president. the president's going to speak on tuesday. i wouldn't be surprised if these senators who are tremendously strategic and know how to play the political game -- i wouldn't be surprised if they preempt the president, maybe do it tomorrow. ma
the world. that is an honest policy debate. paul will have it over the next couple years with marco rubio and others in the senate. there will be more rand paul type candidates running. i think it's healthy for the party to have the debate. i agree with the caller more than he would think. i have never been for shutting down debate or ruling out different points of view in the party. i think a help the party does challenge its own assumptions. in this case i really think we will see out of president obama the great cost from retreating from the world. host: if he runs, marco rubio would have to give up his senate seat. in the wall street journal -- she writes that it will take a stand unity to fight president obama. can the gop in washington now develop those things? guest: i don't think we can assume there will be unity. you should not just cast a vote for the sake of unity. there are some issues where you can have unity, on procedural votes. i think people can modify their views for the sake of unity. i agree with what peggy says. when the president said you did not build that, that was
. this bipartisan group includes marco rubio, florida u.s. senator and influential up-and-comer in the republican party and of cuban descent. he will be influential. john mccain campaigned against george w. bush in 2000, a long time advocate of immigration reform is big advocate of this. democrats almost every case on this bipartisan committee as well as in the senate are expected to follow the president's lead whatever he outlines tomorrow many they're on board with that agenda. the big question and stumbling block has been for decades is border security. how do you define it, how do you support it? this includes the use of drones, technology, all kinds of electronic surveillance and et cetera, critics say there is not enough. you need a fence and more troops on the border. how that gets legislated and sorted out we her from the president and house republicans will be influence in the outcome. house republicans want to be very much a part of passing this legislation this time. jamie: i would love to see our troops continue to work down there. that would be so helpful. carl, thanks. jon: for more
different. they decide to drop the opposition to what used to be called amnesty. now john mccain and marco rubio say we have de facto amnesty now. we want to get people legal and do in a fair way to people waiting in line. there is not a line for people who have no family in the united states. you can't get in at all legally unless you have, unless you are a chain immigrant. i think politics are actually pretty good. i think it will be hard. opposition in the house. there are details that are unclear. how do you verify a border is secure? >> bret: commission that is nebulous. >> yes, but there are republicans and democrats working together on this. senate has excellent chance. >> instant legalization is not a detai >> true. >> to use the phrase get the back of the line. there are two lines. line for immigrant legally in the united states. line for green card to become a citizen. instant legalization that charles refers to puts them at the head of one of the lines. back at the other at the back of green card line. it is cutting to head of the line. a problem. >> bret: show you a few other l
and what could be a comprehensive bill. i would hope that marco rubio and menendez and other members of the senate work together to gather something that is strong and comprehensive. a piece meal approach will not work. >> is this amnesty? >> you will see changes in the republican party on this issue. the republicans recognized politically that they have to have more inclusive policies. they have to reach out to people and morally. it's the right thing to do. welcome people to the country. it makes us stronger and enriches us. i think you will see a different tone to the debate and think there will be elements in both parties that oppose it. they worry that wages will be kept down if you let people into america. whatever you call it, amnesty. there is going to be the elements that will be marginalized and be fewer this debate than last time. >> i don't think there is any doubt they have a chance of passing comprehensive immigration and president bush tried unsuccessfully even though you have and ted kennedy. plunging temperatures, ice and snow gripping much of the country right now.
as senator marco rubio, the florida republican, also working on immigration reform. they are trying to get ahead of president obama who is going to be in nevada tomorrow talking about his immigration reform proposal, bringing back his 2011 and maybe adding more details on that. now, like the president, the senators, the gang of eight senators here, want to produce a pathway to citizenship, and their proposals would include a registration and probation program to allow illegal imgrants to stay and live and work in this country with a green card, provided they paid their back taxes and paid a penalty here and then got in line for the process for the legal citizenship application. they also want to improve border security. that's a big component of the plan as well as tracking legal immigrants, whether or not they leave when they are supposed to. they also want to strengthen the employment verification system, and they want to -- create a green card system for the top foreign college students here who get advanced degrees in math and the sciences. now, the white house did not shoot this down
-- creepy. >> but look at that togetherness. >> we did have that. john mccain, mitt romney, marco rubio, newt gingrich, all you know talking about climate change saying we need to address it. what change? two things. first of all, the great recession. when people are concerned about the economy, issues that are important like climate change fall down the scale. the second, the rise of the tea party. are you willing to work with the other side? newt gingrich took a lot of heat for that ad with nancy pelosi during the campaign. those two factors drive this issue down, but something like hurricane sandy, that could be a wake-up call. >> and hurricane sandy cost a lot of money. now, it's tough with all the pork that went in the bills, but we got a $50 billion appropriation that just came to affected states. that cost a lot of money. so might it not, even if we're not really sure what a cut in emissions might do right now to the trajectory of the climate change that we've experienced, mite it not be worth trying to do something about things? whether through carbon monoxide emissio emissions,
, he will inherit a whole lot of problems. senator marco rubio, republican of florida, had a line about foreign policy saying the key is making sure you're not trying to do more than we can, while also ensuring we are not doing less than we should. rubio rattled off the hot spots in the mideast and kerry offered the this response. >> there's a monumental transformation taking place. this this biggest upheaval in that part of the world since the ottoman empire. since it came apart. it is a highly sectarian, divided, tribal part of the world. and i'm not sure that every policy has always been sensible on that. >> kerry said we'll do what we must to keep iran from getting nuclear weapons. shep? >> a really ugly problem is syria. what about that? >> senator kerry said there was a moment when the syrian regime was reaching out to the west, but the moment is gone. and then there was this exchange. >> every day that goes by in syria, it gets worse. every day that goes by it gets worse. so, there is a -- seems to me, a very strong elm tuesday -- empetus to realize our present policy is not work
. and 60,000 dead. >> republican senator marco rubio said the obama policy on syria has been so disorganized when the situation is resolved, the people there will hate the u.s. >> as iran's best friend. grand central station for terrorists all over the world it was in our national interest to help an opposition form organize itself. >> iran's nuclear program, kerry reiterated the administration policy saying the clock is ticking on efforts to get the regime to comply. >> we will do what we must do, to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. it repeat here today, our policy is not containment. it is prevention. >> if that doesn't work it could ultimately lead to military conflict. up with senator channeled kerry on whether he supported the administration bombing libya in 2011 without congressional approval. >> you see the constitution really doesn't give this kind of latitude to sometimes go to war and sometimes not go to war. >> look, you can be absolutist and apply it to every circumstance. the problem is, it just doesn't work in some instances. >> with north korea threat
a great spokesperson for immigration, marco rubio who has already made some great statements about our republicans have -- lou: what about ted crews? >> absolutely. lou: do you have to be hispanic to have a bright idea? >> you don't, but i'll tell you what, very good hispanics within the party who can lead the charge and immigration, and they should. >> that's the problem with our party. as the problem with our party. he should not send a latino because i understand you because i'm just like you. that was his problem. right now, you should be able to get to the national organization and promote what we believe as a party. that's how people see us as being real. >> we should build a coalition, but here is a we should do. whenever the president will lay out his grand vision. we should preempt that by having people and others come out and laid out before the american people what our vision is. lou: i want to give them credit because i really believe -- he has really been working on this issue. he's been working on it for most of 2012. and what form that takes at on that yet. but i do know
here get citizenship. host: where is that coming from? guest: marco rubio is an important player from florida. he is a cuban-american and he has put forth a plan that would provide citizenship under strict circumstances for people who came to the country illegally. that is pretty big and house republicans have their own plan, some members are putting forward similar plans. obama has his own plan that we will hear about so and then that will look lot like what democrats, with a few more years ago and it is more liberal and is less likely that democrats will embrace that. the fact that both sides are talking about it suggests there is a possibility they could come together and do something within this next congress -- in this next congress behind immigration. republicans did not very do well in this election with the hispanic. they feel like they cannot completely abandon hispanics. they need to show they have some empathy for folks who are here illegally. host: when you look at the line of the senate, you of marco rubio and you have jeff lake, republican from arizona, and you have more
of conservatives. marco rubio of florida, john mccain and lindsay graham were all out there saying the time has come to deal with this in a comprehensive way. >> we heard this before. i have video of chuck schumer saying this will be the last amnesty. we will do it again. look at the debates in 2006. this is the only time. marco rubio said he was not going to support a path to citizenship. they said they were not going to support the program. we have a labor market and we have job displacement and see a lot of americans who were struggling. how is this by giving amnesty and setting off a tidal wave and going to help the average american get a job and better wages and improved working conditions. how will it help the fiscal situation? the bill is a skeletal draft. these guys go into it holding arm and arm like they are going in the tunnel of love. it's like they have been in a lion's den. when you get down to the details, what you see is all the enforcement provisions and things we have on the books anyway. if the president would enforce the law, it's a big bill with a prospect of enforcement wh
a dozen years ago, but some newborn faces like marco rubio who of course is an up and coming conservative who has made this issue one of his own, because of the fact that he too is concerned about the way the republican party is perceived in the latino community. the important thing to keep in mind is this is just the beginning. there are some very divisive issues within the immigration concept that have not yet been worked out. for example, you mentioned at the beginning that this whole idea makes a path to citizenship contingent on border security. they've not worked out yet what the so-called metrics are for how they know the border is secure. that is very, very important. and the devil is, to use a cliche, in the details there. also goes for how they detyfine path to citizenship. >> jessica, you're getting some new information about the white house, the president is planning to propose, maybe as early as tomorrow, when he's in las vegas. >> the difference between the president's plan and what the senate has proposed is the path to citizenship for the 11 million immigrants who are here
testified before the senate foreign relations committee before marco rubio was born. >> 1941. >> this is a job for which he is prepared, and as you know, the last four years, he has donnie number of missions. some we know about. some we don't. on behalf of this administration when it comes to foreign relations. >> kelly o'donnell, i want to ask you about guns because greg sergeant in the washington post is blogging that joe manchin has told a west virginia radio station that he is working with others, with democrats and republicans, on the universal background check. also on closing the gun show loophole. joe manchin, who, of course, campaigned for the office holding a rifle. this is a big change. >> well, for joe manchin, this is a critical time. he was just reelected to a full-term. he has a bit of breathing room, and this is an issue that he is willing to really try and find some ground. he will talk about his a-plus rating with the national rifle association, and a state like west virginia has a long history and kind of cultural tie to guns so, he understands it from that
different direction talking to folks on capitol hill. marco rubio talking about immigration reform. i think they want to get a deal on that, the republicans do. it will be interesting. i think the budget wars will be telling because this is still a huge fight over the role of government, over how much government safety net should be kept versus not. this is the battle that the president wants to have, and whether it's paul ryan or other potential candidates in 2016, you know, that's where a lot is going to be decided many terms of this coalition politics that they want to play in a presidential race. >> paul ryan's moves in williamsburg even before these winter meetings telling the caucus we have to make this deal on the debt ceiling and fight -- live to fight another day, he really is looking more and more like a 2016 possibility because he is trying to recast the posture of the party. >> i don't know where he gets tough sacrifices. what he asked before, and now he wants to do a budget of ten years that will balance the budget. you know, to do that would require even more drastic cuts that
, not necessarily become citizens, but say here legally. host: where is that coming from? caller: marco rubio has put forward a plan that has put on the table but that decision. that is pretty big, and house republicans have their own plans. now, president obama has his own plan that we will hear about sin and that will look like a lot like the plan that democrats cannot with a few years ago, and it is less likely that democrats will embrace that. side is that eatch talking about it suggests to me that they can come together in the next congress, and one of the big reasons is the political ones. republicans did not do very well in this election and they felt like if they were able to do better in this group they would have a better chance of winning. they feel like that they cannot completely abandon hispanics. a huge issue. host: when you look at the lineup of the senate, you have marked rubio putting up legislation, and then jeff flake from arizona, and more democrats as well. guest: the politics are changing fundamentally and quickly. republicans work really shaken up by the demographics of th
immigrants who are here? there's talk even among marco rubio how to get them legalization. they're not leaving anytime soon. no one expects that probably. so i think there's going to be in the principles a way to talk about a path to legalization number one and possibly citizenship. it's still a controversial issue, other issues such as verifying workers for businesses, those are the principles that are going to be talked about by the bipartisan group. there's a lot of hope that is going to be the kickoff to some legislative bill that could get support in the senate and possibly give some republicans in the house who might be willing to vote for it but looking for the senate to lead on this. i think this is a big week. >> lauren one more last thing to you. your latest article as well, maybe a name in there a lot of americans might not be that familiar with but he has certainly been playing a role in our politics because of how much money he's able to throw around. he's already talking about throwing some more money around in 2014. >> you're talking about foster freese who kept r
and three other americans. senator marco rubio of florida was one of the three that asked sensible questions about lapses in security at the consulate. >> were you ever asked to participate in any sort of internal or interagency meeting before this attack with regard to the deteriorating security situation in libya? >> with specific security requests, they didn't come to me, i had no knowledge of them. >> for the most part, though, republicans seemed to obsess over the comments of the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice over double talk, alleged coverup and whether rice purposely underplayed the terrorist connection and underscored protests to an anti-muslim film. >> we were told there were protests and an assault sprang out of that and that was not the fact and the american people could have known that within days and they didn't know that. >> with all due respect, the fact is we had four dead americans. was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they'd they'd go kill some americans. what difference at this point does it make? it is our job
